    Omg. Burger was fantastic. Cooked perfect med rare. Fresh onion and nice slice of red tomatoe I did no bun. Fries were fresh and crispy. Service was great but he forgot one of our orders and we waited nearly 20 min to get it. By the time it came rest of us were finished. Other than that it was fantastic

    Food was only mediocre for the price. Steak frite was full of nerves and tough. Mine was overcooked. My husband's undercooked. I have been going to Old Ebbit Grill for 30 years but since the Clyde franchise bought it, not only did the menu change but the quality. The waiters and busboys are very attentive and courtesy. Our waiter made efforts to ensure one of the diners with us did not get an ingredient she was allergic to.

    Great Old Fashioned. Bartenders were knowledgeable. Wait staff was a little distracted and abrupt, but they were busy as most places in DC on a Friday.

    They brought me the incorrect year of a $200 wine bottle without telling me. The sommelier tried to make amends, but it was clear he didn’t know how to explain wines.

    Food was great. We had the clam chowder as appetizer and it was good. The pork chop was excellent as was the Pimento Cheese burger. Service was good as well. I would recommend.

    The restrictions was crazy busy. However we had a reservation and were seated in minutes of arriving. The dining room is beautiful but we sat at a table by the bar. We loved that space too. The food and drinks were amazing. I hope to return one day- I highly recommend
